Argomento centrale del libro è il confronto tra il lavoro di Reuven Feuerstein, ossia la Modificabilità Cognitiva Strutturale e l'Esperienza di apprendimento Mediato, con gli studi neuroscientifici. Tramite tale confronto vengono valutati i limiti e la portata delle teorie di Feuerstein, rielaborandole in coerenza con le ricerche sul cervello. Inoltre sono messi in discussione i significati di apprendimento e cognizione, soprattutto in relazione alla possibilità di modificare l'intelligenza.... Topics: Metodo Feuerstein, brain plasticity, neuroscience, intelligenza
This study is focused on the preliminary investigations of soil of southern district Bannu, KPK, Pakistan in the form of geotechnical and mineralogical details, obtained by performing various kinds of tests on soil samples collected from selected spots, where the unusual cracks were observed to have been appeared in the pavements, boundary walls and some other parts of the buildings. Similar cracks were observed in most parts of the world where the soil was found to be expansive which depends... Topics: Swelling, Semi-arid, climate, plasticity index

The water quality is an index of health and is one of the area of major concern to environmentalists, since industrilisation, urbanization and modern agriculture practices have a direct impact on the water resources. The investigation was carried out to study the water as well as locked soil of segwal reservoir of Badwani, M.P. India. The change in physico chemical parameters of water such as water temperature, ph, turbidity, transparency, total hardness, Ca hardness, Mg hardness, alkalinity,... Topics: Physico-chemical parameters, locked soil, chloride content, alkalinity, hardness, plasticity.
Our prior belief of the brain as a static and unchanging organ is being replaced by a new understanding of the versatility of the brain throughout life. Brain plasticity, which involves changes occurring in our brain that allow us to learn and function in response to new experiences, happens not only early in life but also in adulthood, as well as in response to traumatic brain injury. Dr. Michael Merzenich, professor emeritus of neuroscience at the University of California, San Francisco,... Topics: Groks, Groks science show, Brain plasticity, Michael Merzenich, Cognition
The week ten notes titled the Plasticity of the Brain, for Science 201, Vision Perception and Science taught by the author at the Emily Carr Institute for Art and Design (refer to Science 201 Course Outline). Topics: Emily Carr Institute for Art and Design, Science 201, Plasticity of the Brain
In this article is presented a very simple and effective analog spiking neural network simulator, realized with an event-driven method, taking into account a basic biological neuron parameter: the spike latency. Also, other fundamentals biological parameters are considered, such as subthreshold decay and refractory period. This model allows to synthesize neural groups able to carry out some substantial functions. The proposed simulator is applied to elementary structures, in which some...

Most people would agree that a biological understanding of mental illness is an important effort and, accordingly, it is widely pursued. But how often do you hear about researchers investigating positive qualities such as mindfulness, compassion, and creativity? Today we'll talk with Dr. Richard Davidson, neuroscience professor at the University of Wisconsin and director of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds. He is widely known for his brain imaging studies of meditating Buddhist monks... Topics: Brain plasticity, Mental health, meditation, Buddhism, compassion, mindfulness, brain imaging,...
There may be 20 billion neurons in your brain but that isn't nearly enough to allow each cell to hold its own unique bit of information. Rather, the information stored and processed by your brain is maintained in spatially and temporally defined networks. These networks can refine themselves over time and the connections between neurons in these networks strengthen with use and wither with disuse. Dr. Jason MacLean joined us to discuss this Hebbian plasticity and the past, present, and future... Topics: Groks, networks, Jason MacLean, Hebb, Hebbian, Shatz, modeling, theoretical, neuron, sleep, memory,...
Sensation is a concept with a conflicted philosophical history. It has found as many allies as enemies in nearly every camp from empiricism to poststructuralism. Polyvalent, with an uncertain referent, and often overshadowed by intuition, perception, or cognition, sensation invites as much metaphysical speculation as it does dismissive criticism. The promise of sensation has certainly not been lost on the phenomenologists who have sought to 'rehabilitate' the concept. In Plastic Bodies, Tom...

In airplane construction generally one finds an almost exclusive use of wing tips that are practically square end but occasionally those with large rounded tips. For use as a cantilever wing, however, a wing with pointed tips may contain valuable aerodynamic advantages.

Created in 1959, "The Drama of Metal Forming" is an exceptional film that shows the forming of metal in a foundry. It was directed by Peter DeNormanville and produced by the famed editor Raymond Spottiswoode, the father of Hollywood director Roger Spottiswoode and distant relative of the Swindon Bakery's famous chef Angus Spottiswoode. Slabbing mills are rollers are shown, almost certainly located in the UK, and the many processes used to create finished parts such as railway car...
